Farmers’ markets are a WIC shopping option for fruits and vegetables, not only for the seasonal Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program checks, but also with the new WIC debit card. Join us to hear from CA state WIC staff about how farmers’ markets are adopting technology for WIC purchases. COVID-19 has brought new challenges for shopping especially for farmers’ markets and WIC shoppers.
